Endocrinology in Houston, TX

WE SPECIALIZE IN:
Type 1 diabetes, commonly called juvenile diabetes, is caused by an inability of the pancreas to make sufficient insulin to control blood sugars.
Type 2 diabetes, commonly called adult-onset diabetes, is characterized by insulin resistance, which causes elevated blood sugars.
Defined as elevated blood sugars resulting from pregnancy. During pregnancy, the placenta produces hormones causing insulin resistance, sometimes resulting in diabetes.
Thyroid nodules are very common, occurring in up to 40% of adults. They are small lumps that form within the thyroid gland. We offer thyroid biopsies and results are usually received in 10 days.
Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) is a method for biopsy of the thyroid gland. Your doctor will use an ultrasound to help guide the position of the needle for an accurate biopsy.
On the day of the test, x-rays will be taken of the lower spine, hip, & forearm. It is preferable that your bone density should be done on the same machine each year.
There are now several medications on the market for treatment. These include estrogen, bisphosphonates, & the newer drugs Forteo and Prolia.
Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland is producing too much thyroid hormone. Patients with hyperthyroidism usually have high thyroid hormone levels and low TSH.
Occurs when the thyroid gland isn’t producing enough thyroid hormone. Patients with hypothyroidism usually have low thyroid hormone levels & elevated TSH.
Treatment usually starts with surgical removal of the thyroid, followed by radioactive iodine ablation.
Parathyroid disorders and abnormal blood calcium levels
Thyroid Uptake/Scan is a diagnostic test used to determine the cause of hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid).
Thyroid whole body scan with thyrogen injections for evaluation of thyroid cancer.
